Need a last-minute dessert to bring to a Halloween party? These simple and festive brownies make the perfect Halloween party food. They're super simple to make, because they start with a brownie mix. And kids love these Halloween brownies because they're topped with mini marshmallows, candy corn and chocolate chips.  You could easily play around with different small candies for the topping, but this combo is like a Halloween version of a s'mores topping.  This recipe is great fun for the whole family, a great opportunity to include the kids in the baking process. If you are bringing these to a school, make sure your brownie mix is nut-free, as lots of schools have this as a rule because of the prevalence of nut allergies.

What You'll Need

  • 1 19.5 to 19.8 oz. box brownie mix
  • 1/2 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
  2. Mix brownie mix, oil, water and eggs with a spatula or wooden spoon, about 50 strokes, until well-combined.
  3. Spread brownie batter in prepared pan. Bake 23 minutes.
  4. Remove brownies from oven. Sprinkle mini marshmallows, candy corn and chocolate chips over brownies. Return to oven, and bake another 5-8 minutes.
  5. Let brownies cool completely before cutting into squares.

    Want to mix it up from your usual chocolate brownies? Try these Carmel Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies or this Decadent Fudge Brownie Pie for a slightly more sophisticated treat. Or, try these One-Pot Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies with a little bit of a kick to it. If you want all the brownie deliciousness but aren't in the mood for cocoa, try making blondies - as with brownies, the possibilities are endless.  Try blondies with chocolate and butterscotch, chocolate peanut butter blondies or blondies with shortbread crust.
